is not true. >>> new york city in the new >>> new york city in the new york city area has two football teams. one of them is pretty good. the other team is not good. they are called the jets. they wear green and even the people who like them now show up at their games wearing homemade jerseys that say this, buttfumble. this refers to the jets' quarterback in his day job when he's not modeling he's supposed to be playing football and last weekend he was holding the football and inexplicably ran into the butts of one of his own teammates and fell down and dropped the ball and the other team picked up the ball and got a touchdown. hence, the butt fumble. the jets are just not a good football team this year. you can address your hate mail to me at msnbc. the auto reply you will get will will you the word butt fumble. the owner of the butt fumbles is a man named woody johnson. he was a chairman of mitt romney's campaign this year. he hosted a luncheon for big time republican bundlers. the audience was reince priebus who attended the meeting. it was his rnc who hired the firm ran by

thinking about the farm bill over new year's. >>> on christmas, one day after a man in new york set the house he lived in with his sister on fire, the local police chief announced the gunman's sister is likely a third victim of homicide. we knew the gunman's sister was missing, she and the gunman lived in the house together were not on good terms. their mother lived there too until she died in october. human remains were found in the home. police believe they are those of the shooter's sister, who was in her late '60s. in the 1980s he was convicted of killing his 92-year-old grandmother and is a convicted felon. he was not supposed to be in possession of firearms, among the weapons used by a shooter was a bush master assault rifle. that sounds familiar, it is the same weapon used in the shootings newtown connecticut. neither obtained their guns illegally. we're trying to figure out how to stop these massacres, one is far too many, and they seem to be a terrifyingly regular occurrence in our country. still, these horrific events shock us so deeply because they remain rare. and becaus

disaster, and now republicans, surprise, want to have that fight again. "the new york times" reports that one idea bouncing around the right side of the aisle is this. the republicans will extend tax cuts for the middle class, and then when they need to raise the debt ceiling, quote, demand deep concessions on medicare and social security as a price to raise the debt ceiling. one republican senator reportedly called the debt ceiling the line in the stand. the odds are pretty close to zero that we mint a $1 trillion coin in order to pay off some of the debt. but there's striking movement in the direction of changing the rules so we don't ever have to fight over this completely unnecessary issue ever again. remember, this is important. the debt ceiling isn't about incurring future debt. it's about the money congress has already duly authorized and appropriated and voted to spend. it's not a fight about whether or not to spend money, it's a fight about whether or not to pay your credit card bill. today, the president basically said, no more. y'rp+ing this dumb fight. i am not going to d
